Typical hot and humid weather with storms returning Saturday

Forecast

EVENING: Hazy Sun, Hot & Humid. Hi 92.

TONIGHT: Mainly Clear, Muggy. Lo 74.

FRIDAY: Hazy Sun, Hot & Humid. Hi 94.

Much of the area remained dry today, although there were three overachieving showers that occurred earlier this afternoon. This evening remains warm and very humid with temperatures in the 80s.

Tomorrow should be dry during the daylight hours, but very hot as high temperatures approach the mid-90s. A front to our west will likely hold off until late Friday. Best chances for storms Friday will likely be to our north and west but we will have to monitor the projections of where the storms could go. Either way we do not expect widespread coverage of storms. Highs will likely be in the low 90s today and Friday.

Our weekend forecast sees the return of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Saturday features the highest chance for rain as a slow-moving front moves in. A line or two of thunderstorms should form by the afternoon that we will have to monitor. Heavy rain will likely be the main threat of any showers or storms that pop-up. For Sunday the front lingers and that will help trigger a few more leftover showers and storms. We will continue to track these chances for storms and provide updates over the next few days.

A look ahead to next week shows a little drop in the extreme heat and humidity with less chances for showers and storms.
